Gary Neville’s true feelings about Mohamed Salah and five other key Liverpool players.
On Sunday, Manchester United will host Liverpool at Old Trafford in one of the most important games of the 2021-22 Premier League season thus far.
Both sets of fans will be poring over the opposition XIs in the build-up to the match, seeking for any areas where they might gain an advantage over their opponents.
Former players and pundits will be included in this.
Gary Neville, a former United defender and current Sky Sports analyst, has previously made no secret of his allegiances heading into these games, and has had plenty to say about the Red Devils’ erratic play.
After a major Liverpool locker room brawl, Alex Ferguson’sacked’ a Man United player.
What does he make of Jurgen Klopp’s main players, though? Here are five occasions he’s given his opinion on some of Liverpool’s biggest players.
Given the number of goals Liverpool is scoring at the moment, some of its defensive players’ efforts are going unnoticed.
The Reds still have perhaps the greatest goalkeeper in the Premier League in Alisson, who demonstrated his worth against Atletico Madrid on Tuesday, making a number of key one-on-one saves.
According to the Daily Mirror, Neville has complimented the Brazilian effusively in the past, and in December 2020, he praised the impact the stopper has had since joining at Liverpool.
“By far the best. When you have a great goalkeeper on your team, it makes a huge impact.
“The points you’ll win as a decent goalkeeper to a great goalkeeper are unquantifiable. Alisson performs it on a weekly basis.
“He makes save after save, good choice after good decision, he makes the fewest errors, and he gives complete assurance and authority to the rest of the team.”
“It’s the most difficult decision on the field, but for a top team that’s going to win the league or the Champions League, I don’t see how you’re going to win without an incredible goalie, and he’s an incredible goalkeeper.”
Neville’s comments regarding Alexander-Arnold at the end of the previous season sparked debate when he claimed he didn’t anticipate the full-back to be selected for England’s European squad by Gareth Southgate.
“The summary comes to an end.”
